SHADOW WINDS (Delay)
Capable of moody, menacing offerings, Shadow Winds achieves its subversive goals with a startlingly simple three-knob control set and a three-position toggle for selecting its various programs.
The toggle offers three options via L-R switch labeled I, II and III. The programs can be described thusly:
- I / Left - Alternating 3rds up and down
- II / Middle - Alternating 3rd down with tremolo
- III / Right - Alternating tri-tones up and down with vibrato
The Time knob controls the delay/modulation rate; the Replicate knob controls feedback and overall intensity; and the pedal’s secret weapon is its aptly-named Invoke knob. The Invoke function introduces various stages of modulation into each of the programs, climaxing after reaching the 12 o'clock position.
LIMITED EDITION BLUE DARK AURA (Reverb)
The Dark Aura offers easy-to-use reverb with something extra. Think of it as an eerily addictive spectral bonus.
For starters, the pedal delivers classic, super lush concert hall reverb. It can be adjusted to create a wide, highly versatile range of sonic spaces -- everything from cozy catacombs to an all-engulfing wash of mindwarp infinitum.
And then things start to get a little weird.
The "Evolve" knob is Dark Aura's secret weapon. It adds slippery, shimmering modulation to the reverb's natural ambiance. In small drams, "Evolve" delivers extra dimensionality and a sense of animation. A bit more "Evolve" creates a chill in the air, like a fleeting shadow. In large doses? Well, you better start budgeting for some major exorcism expenses.
FROST BITE (Fuzz)
In any season, the time is right for Frost Bite, a silicon fuzz classic with a barely-concealed lust for mayhem.
To attain tone this awesome, you’ll gladly sacrifice a few fingers and toes.
The Frost Bite dishes out its icy fury via a straightforward three-knob control format – Tone, Fuzz and Level. But beware: the grandiose, punishing sweep of its Fuzz settings exceeds anything that you’ve encountered in this life...or any past life, for that matter.
The pedal’s unique silicon circuit is voiced to provide extended low-end impact and ultra-gnarly mid-high presence. Perfect for ensuring that your solo cuts through the frozen tundra, or dismembering unsuspecting listeners.
OLD RUIN (Distortion)
The Old Ruin delivers a broad array of distorted deliciousness, ranging from a somewhat mild overdrive all the way to higher-gain howling.
Offering a user-friendly recipe for mayhem, the Old Ruin supplies three knobs to unlock its vicious tendencies. In addition to Gain and Volume controls, it includes a specially tuned tone knob called “Texture” for dialing in the pedal’s pugnacious character. “Texture” is much more than just an earthly tone control. It summons sonic nuances from the great beyond.
Looking for something silky and stealthy? You’ll find it here. Prefer a stinging, searing experience like a faceful of lava? Twist the “Texture” knob, wake up and smell the brimstone!
